How can I reduce back pain while driving?

I currently have a Pontiac Vibe, 2005, as my vehicle. I drive about 80 miles roundtrip 2-3 times a week in this car.
After the trips, my back has pain in the mid-lower area. This particular vehicle does not have adjustable lumbar.
For a vehicle in this class, can anyone make recommendations on how to alleviate back pain? Is there a specially designed car seat heating pad, additional lumbar support, or something I can do? Is there an option to just change my seats out in the front, and where would I have something like that done at?
As it stands, I looked into getting a new vehicle. But... I have a 3.9% interest rate on this, which is almost unheard of right now, and 4 years to go, at 353 a month. Anything new I buy has been looking at 450-500 a month, although for a higher class of car.
